Fires burning in the Central Mountains of the Dominican Republic since mid-March 2005 have scorched as much 247,105 acres (1,000 square kilometers) in the Jose del Carmen Ramirez National Park. According to a news release from the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID), three months of drought led to the devastating fires. The fires have produced no human casualties, but drinking water and coffee crops have been compromised...
